To the Lighthouse: Musical Inspirations & Responses

This concert explores the music behind Virginia Woolf’s fifth novel and recent compositions that respond to her work. The inaugural concert of a series on Woolf, Bloomsbury and music, it intertwines readings with Scottish folk song and compositions for voice and piano by composers including Benjamin Britten, Thea Musgrave, Judith Weir and David Knotts.

A free symposium will be held the preceding afternoon, with papers and discussion by Woolf scholars and musicians: contact for details. [Read More]
